Aim: To investigate a possible relationship between preoperative platelet count and following clinicopathological variables of the endometrial carcinoma: age, stage, histological type, histological grading (G), myometrial invasion, lymphovascular space involvement, cervical involvement, lymph node metastasis. In particular the existence of a possible relationship between elevated preoperative platelet count (=or>300 000 microL) and negative prognostic factors. Methods: The authors analyzed retrospectively 120 patients with endometrial carcinoma underwent to surgery as the initial treatment. All the patients were subjected to radical surgical procedure: peritoneal cytology, total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, systematic pelvic lymphadenectomy and omentectomy. Blood platelet count was taken from the patients three days prior to the surgery. Results: The patients with platelet count<300000/microL whom they had a G1, G2, G3 they were respectively the 23.1%, 44.2% and 32.7% versus the 0%, 12.5% and 87.5%, respectively for G1, G2, G3, of the patients with platelet count>300000/microL (P=0.024). Only considering the patients to the stage I of the Federazione Internazionale dei Ginecologi ed Ostetrici (FIGO). The patients with platelet count<300000/microL whom they had a G1, G2, G3 they were respectively the 27.3%, 43.2% and 29.5% versus the 0%, 0% and 100%, respectively for G1, G2, G3, of the patients with platelet count=or>300000/microL (P=0.008). There were no differences respect to age, stage, histological type, myometrial invasion, lymphovascular space involvement and cervical involvement. Conclusion: Elevated preoperative platelet count, in the patients with endometrial carcinoma, may reflect poor prognostic factor such as higher histological grade. This study allowed to observe: a significant correlation between elevated preoperative platelet count (=or>300000/microL) and tumoral grading (G3) of general population submitted to study; for the patients to the stage I FIGO a more significant correlation between elevated preoperative platelet count (=or>300000/microL) and tumoral grading: the 100% of the patients with platelet count=or>300 000/microL had a histological grading G3.

Abstract

Aim: To investigate a possible relationship between preoperative platelet count and following clinicopathological variables of the endometrial carcinoma: age, stage, histological type, histological grading (G), myometrial invasion, lymphovascular space involvement, cervical involvement, lymph node metastasis. In particular the existence of a possible relationship between elevated preoperative platelet count (=or>300 000 microL) and negative prognostic factors. Methods: The authors analyzed retrospectively 120 patients with endometrial carcinoma underwent to surgery as the initial treatment. All the patients were subjected to radical surgical procedure: peritoneal cytology, total abdominal hysterectomy, bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, systematic pelvic lymphadenectomy and omentectomy. Blood platelet count was taken from the patients three days prior to the surgery. Results: The patients with platelet count<300000/microL whom they had a G1, G2, G3 they were respectively the 23.1%, 44.2% and 32.7% versus the 0%, 12.5% and 87.5%, respectively for G1, G2, G3, of the patients with platelet count>300000/microL (P=0.024). Only considering the patients to the stage I of the Federazione Internazionale dei Ginecologi ed Ostetrici (FIGO). The patients with platelet count<300000/microL whom they had a G1, G2, G3 they were respectively the 27.3%, 43.2% and 29.5% versus the 0%, 0% and 100%, respectively for G1, G2, G3, of the patients with platelet count=or>300000/microL (P=0.008). There were no differences respect to age, stage, histological type, myometrial invasion, lymphovascular space involvement and cervical involvement. Conclusion: Elevated preoperative platelet count, in the patients with endometrial carcinoma, may reflect poor prognostic factor such as higher histological grade. This study allowed to observe: a significant correlation between elevated preoperative platelet count (=or>300000/microL) and tumoral grading (G3) of general population submitted to study; for the patients to the stage I FIGO a more significant correlation between elevated preoperative platelet count (=or>300000/microL) and tumoral grading: the 100% of the patients with platelet count=or>300 000/microL had a histological grading G3.
